Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Trouble downloading


Having trouble once I have downloaded shows into my itunes. The shows go to itunes fine and play off of my home computer fine, yet when I sync my ipod to my itunes the shows do not go to my ipod. It is only with archive shows that I am having trouble. Wondering if anyone has any answers? Just as a tip too there is an icon next to every song I have downloaded off of archive (it almost looks like the wifi icon). Any help would be appreciated!

That sign usually means iTunes can not locate the songs. If you download a show to the computer and drop it in iTunes, then move the show/folder to a different location on your computer (or delete it), the link is lost and iTunes will not be able to play the songs.

Though if you are able to play the songs on your computer THROUGH ITUNES, this is not the problem.

Good morning,

Are you downloading the SBD shows or AUD shows, it sounds like from your post that you are downloading SBD shows, that is the reason you are getting the wifi icon, you can only stream the SBD shows. I don't know if this helps but from your post that sounds like what you are doing. Have a good one

Yeah, sounds like you downloaded the podcasts of the streamable mp3's of soundboards. If that's the case, then the files are not, strictly speaking, on your computer - they are being downloaded when you play them each time.

There are ways to get your hands on soundboards of these shows. Email me if you'd like some tips - I have many to trade as well.
